Harvest Moon DS Cute (牧場物語コロボックルステーション for ガール, Bokujō Monogatari: Korobokkuru Sutēshon for Gāru, lit. Ranch Story: Colobocle Station for Girl) is similar as Harvest Moon: DS.
It is the fourth game that focuses on the female perspective or view. Many glitches and bugs are fixed from Harvest Moon: DS in this remake as well as an added character called Skye and the option to have a female "best friend" instead of a husband (although this was removed from the North America version).
The game starts out with the Harvest Goddess and her Harvest Sprites standing over your bed while you are asleep discussing what to do with you. The Harvest Goddess says she promised your mother that she'd make you work. However, she decides that your character is too lazy, and gives up almost immediately.
The Harvest King appears, surprising everyone, and is obviously not pleased with the Harvest Goddess's decision. They both insult each other, with even the Harvest Sprites joining in, until the Harvest King becomes furious and turns the Goddess to stone. The sprites are angry, and insult the King even more, to which he responds by banishing them. He leaves just as the character wakes up. The Witch Princess appears and informs you that it is your job now to get back the 101 Sprites and rescue the Harvest Goddess.
This game is set in Forget-Me-Not-Valley; the characters are mostly the same as in Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life. In this game, you start off with all the basic tools, and a necklace. You are not given any animal barns or house upgrades; you must build them by employing Gotz over the phone (another added feature in the Harvest Moon DS games).
Renovating the farm means you must remove all the weeds from the farmland, crush the rocks littering the ground and use an axe to chop up the tree stumps. You must also till the land and plant crops for profit, and keep animals to sell their produce. You can also grow trees and build basements to plant crops of all seasons in. Mainly, though, your mission is to find the Harvest Sprites and make a successful farm.

There are eleven total bachelors eligible for marriage. For some of the bachelors, certain things are required in order to meet them so you can eventually marry/befriend them. If you get the love bangle from the Harvest Sprites 'Casino,' you can see how much affection points each gift is worth for your future husband.
If you decide to marry a Mineral Town guy, they will move in with you.
